Middle School Curriculum and Academic Programme

Our Middle School programme offers students an international framework of academic challenge and life skills appropriate to this stage of adolescence. The subject-based programme is an excellent preparation for high school and life-long learning. In addition to a full range of subjects, all students take part in a one-week field trip called Personal Development Week (PDW), a major stage production and a wide range of other activities. The compulsory academic curriculum for all students in Grades 6, 7 and 8 includes Mathematics, Science, Individuals and Societies, Language and Literature (English), Language Acquisition (German, French or Spanish, Arts (Visual Art, Drama and Music, which includes instrumental lessons), Design, and Physical and Health Education. Student council, sport teams, choir, service projects and our outreach initiatives in Bulgaria and Nepal are just some of the opportunities for students to become involved, develop leadership skills and make a difference.
